    I'm currently loading 200XTP's over 9.3 grains of 800X (KKM barrel), I want to substitute Hornady's 200grn fmj's to cut down on practice cost. Anyone have experience with these, i.e. feeding/accuracy ? tks

    Got Four, you should be able to swap them without any issues. The FMJ is a little shorter than the XTP HP bullet so pressures shouldn't be an issue. Feeding with FMJs are usually great and accurate. Good luck! Let us know how you make out!

    I have used Magnus 200gr FMJ and Hornady 200gr XTP's with the same brass, primer and powder/charge with no problems or changes in reloading setup.
    This was in a G20SF.

    I've used 200 gr fmj's with no problems in stock G20 SF. I have an offer in on some Zero 200 gr projectiles right now. The last I checked powdervalley had 200 gr Zero bullets in stock.

    I have used Delta Precision 200 gr FMJ, they seem good to go.
